The Spanish Square in Merida is in the old city next to the Cathedral of Santa Maria and the city council. You'll almost inevitably end up there after spending a day visiting the many tourist attractions in Merida. It's also a good place to rest because there are a lot of terraces and several benches and trees.
The number one- pork and cheese, the number two- ham with salmorejo, the number three- salmon with cream cheese, and so on all the way up to 100. There are a hundred sandwiches to choose from here so that everyone finds something that they like. The bread here is crispy and all of the sandwiches come with chips, along with a good beer, will be perfect for a good tapas session. All of their sandwiches are delicious. To try them all, you'd have to eat two sandwiches per day for fifty days. Let's get started.
This is a very nice place in the center of Almendralejo, only 50 meters from the Plaza de Espronceda. You can simply have a drink or sample some tapas accompanied by a fine D.O. de Guadiana or glass of cava from the local area. The tapas are high-quality and the service is great. The value for the money is also good.
Augusta Tapas bar is in Merida, specifically it's right in front of the museum and near the amphitheater and theater bar where you can get cheap beer for around 1.50 euros. To regain your strength and continue visiting the city it's a great idea.
As I was strolling through the so-called “Little Seville,” I found this small tavern which is a perfect place to try bite-size morsels of Extremeño cuisine like codfish brandade, game in aged mustard sauce, yellow-tomato salmorejo with pistachios, or sugar beets with tuna belly. This food is, of course, paired with regional wines bearing the D.O. Ribera del Guadiana; we had the Viña Puebla Selección. Make sure to check out the exhibits that decorate the tavern on the ground and first floors, and to have a refreshing drink on the terrace in the afternoon.
This little tapas bar has become a vital stop since the actor Juan Echanove chose it to make one of his stops on his culinary tour through Spanish territory. The specialty is ham, certainly a very typical dish in the area, judging by the number of Iberian pig companies in the area. Here you will find many ways of cooking the Iberian pig. The best thing is to arrive, order a glass of wine and taste some of their tapas. You won't regret it!
In the Plaza Chica de Zafra, this small tavern with touches of Seville, will delight. For € 5 you can get a bucket full of bottles of Mahou. It's a nice place for a quick dinner or snack. The potato omelette is great!
